If a user keeps deleting the code from their question after receiving an answer (thus making the answer meaningless), what should we do? Rollback the edit (what if the user just deletes the code again)? Delete the question?

More examples (same user): #1, #2 (see also edit histories).

    We've been getting a few of those in matlab recently. Here's another recent example from a different user. Oct 7, 2011 at 4:20
  • @yoda: I think it's the same user - at least the code is the same.

    Lol, probably someone cheating on homework who's paranoid about getting caught.

Rollback the edit. If the user deletes the code again, flag for a moderator and they can lock the question if neccessary.
